Change is on the way, my friends. The good people of Wooster Collective were recently invited to the White House to meet with the Obama Administration- an event we would have never anticipated. The briefing gave over fifty arts organizations the chance to engage in a discussion with White House officials, and we are eager to see the ensuing changes play out.
“We know that a lot of people will hate us for going to The White House. But for us, the goal of attending the meetings yesterday was not to attempt to ‘partner’ with government on anything. Or to ask for their acceptance. The power of street art is that you don’t ask for, nor need, permission. At best, it’s about tolerance and understanding.” –Wooster Collective
